Adobe Artist in Residence Program

Artist in Residence

A partnership to elevate emerging artists in web3

The Meta Angels and Adobe Artist in Residence Program elevates an emerging NFT artist each month by providing them with financial support, Adobe’s tools, and a platform from which to share their work.

Elevating creativity with Adobe

We are thrilled to have Adobe as our partner for this Artist in Residence program, giving us the opportunity to work with a global brand that has – for decades – been a leading innovator at the intersection of creativity and technology.

Meet November's Artist in Residence: Tony Menias

His love for photography began when his father handed him his first camera when he was 10. He's been snapping anything and everything ever since. Today Tony travels the world capturing the human condition in its beauty and essence. His objective is to inspire through visual storytelling to close the gap of time & space between his subject and their observer.

About the Program

Elevating Artists

With support, we’ll be investing in the success of emerging, diverse artists who are underrepresented in NFTs – leveraging the power of NFTs to bring a global audience to artists who might not otherwise have a channel for reaching collectors.

Art Collection

We’ll be expanding upon the breathtaking art that Aslan Ruby created by delivering 12 monthly limited edition airdrops by an Artist in Residence over a year, so owners of Meta Angels can expand their collections.

Building Community

We’ll be bringing the Meta Angels community into the Artist-in-Residence selection process through the launch of our first Meta Angels Council. If you are in the Arts Council, we lean on you every month to help us choose the next emerging artist to amplify and grace the wallets of our holders with a new piece of art.

Are You the Next Artist in Residence?

Each month, in partnership with Adobe, we’ll select an emerging artist and commission an original artwork that you'll work on throughout the month. We encourage you to apply whether or not you have experience in the web3 art space. Our team of curators is excited to see your work.
